"Hormesis" - an inappropriate extrapolation from the specific to the universal

Deborah Axelrod, Kathy Burns, Devra Davis and Nicolas Van Larebeke UGent (2004) International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health. 10(3). p.335-339
abstract
Although it is generally accepted that some chemicals may have beneficial effects at low doses, incorporating the se effects into risk assessments generally ignores well-established factors related to exposure and human susceptibility. The authors argue against indiscriminate application of hormesis in assessments of chemical risks for regulatory purposes.
